Subject: minutes and call info - metamodel mtg.
Minutes from Metamodel meeting 10/2/2000 Agenda: 1. Review of context matrix, and identification of metamodel element representing each context 2. Discussion of plans for arriving at XML representation for business processes defined against the metamodel 2.a. Identification of minimal required content of an XML document representing a business process in order for it to be the functional basis for deriving a Trading Partner Profile (i.e. half of a Trading Partner Agreement) 2.b. Discussion of use of XMI 3. Feedback from last weeks walk-through of the AIAG example expressed as a model against the metamodel. Attendees: Bill McCarthy Bob Haugen Edwin Young Core Casanave Mike Rowley Jean-Jacques Dubrais Anne Hendry Antoine Lonjon Paul Levine Stefano Pogliani Sharon Kadlec Tim McGrath Karsten Riemer We went over the table of contexts with Jim Clark's annotations of meta model elements. Bill McCarthy and Bob Haugen to update document with comments and corrections, and to work with Jim Clark to update metamodel where required. We discussed classification schemes. Reg/Rep model of a hierarchy of classifiers and a type of relationship called classification appears to cover all the needs. However, it is unclear who in BP/CC is responsible for providing list of possible values for these classifiers. Sharon said that this was up to trade/industry bodies. But we at least need examples. We discussed XML formats. Antoine had been working on conversion to XMI of example activity diagram and sequence diagram. Antoine sent the resulting XMI to the ccbp-context list. These XMI documents will be discussed at Tuesday's meatamodel meeting. There was a comment that perhaps the recommended XML format is a TA issue. Antoine will contact Duane. Sharon asked whether ebXML would/should provide stylesheets to convert the contents of a BP model to html. Group agreed that that is not in scope for BP team. However, we will see what Sig Handelman and POC comes up with. We discussed BP relation to TPA. Question of 'what comes first' the BP or the TPP. In all industry standard scenarios BP comes first, TPP is derived and augmented. In the more entrepreneurial .com world TPP's might come first, and BP becomes an assembly of existing TPP's. We agreed to focus on the former scenarios for now. Bob pointed out that the core process work migh also provide a bottom-up or middle-up approach where you build bigger processes from core processes. We solicited feedback on last week's review of AIAG example. None offered. Karsten to schedule to schedule the review of the FSV layer. We need access to the actual .mdl model, not just the .doc specification document. Next meeting October 10. at 9 am PST, 12 pm EST. Preliminary agenda: Review of XMI documents. Attempt to settle on XML format for POC. Discussion of BP elements needed for TP. Discussion of Partner definition. Scheduling of FSV review. Process for review of metamodel.
